In the sprawling cover, the 28 Grammy winner ensured new music would arrive ASAP.
“With all the isolation and injustice of the past year, I think we’re all ready to escape, travel, love and laugh again,” Beyoncé explained. “I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to participate in the maintenance of this escape in any way I can. I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes me a year to personally search through thousands of sounds. to find just the right kick or snare. “
“A choir can have up to 200 harmonies stacked,” she continued. “Yet there is nothing quite like the amount of love, passion and healing I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it’s as exciting as when I was nine. Yes, the music is coming! “
Houston legend’s newest solo studio album, Lemonade, came in 2016. His latest new musical offerings in general came in the form of the visual album 2018 All is love which she did alongside husband Jay-Z and released as THE CARTERS followed by last year Black is king, the visual component of its 2019 The Lion King: The Gift album.
Elsewhere in the interview, Beyoncé shared what every decade of her life has taught her.
As a child, she was “devoted to dreaming” and “didn’t speak much”, which led her to channel everything into singing once she started competing at the age of seven. She described her teenage years as “about the grind,” as Destiny’s Child took off. “I wanted to break all the stereotypes of the black superstar,” she noted. Once she reached the age of 20, she focused on “building a solid foundation for my career and establishing my legacy,” which once again required her rebels against traditional and pioneer methods.
Beyoncé’s 30s was defined by founding her family with Hov – they share nine-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and four-year-old twins Rumi and Sir – and shifting her fame and fortune to launch BeyGOOD.
“My wish is that my quarantine be fun and full of freedom,” she concluded in part. “I want to feel the same freedom that I feel on stage every day of my life. I want to explore aspects of myself that I haven’t had time to experience and enjoy with my husband and my children. traveling without working I want this next decade to be about celebration, joy and giving and receiving love I want to give all the love I have to the people who love me in return. “
